Capcom insider, Dusk Golem, may have some insight into the future of Monster Hunter. Raring to launch its last major update this October, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, is looking to hopefully give fans a good last hoorah before the game dies down and the next project surfaces. Well, it might be coming to the Switch, if they’re correct.
According to Dusk Golem’s thread, Capcom is going to reveal a Monster Hunter game for the Switch and alleges it’ll be running off a compatible version of the developer’s in-house RE Engine. The caveat comes in the form of Capcom being vocal about the possibility of it launching on the Switch.
To elaborate on two things, Monster Hunter Switch is running on a Switch compatible version of the RE Engine, which is why I've been posting っ○ whenever I've been talking about it for the last few months, it's supposed to be the RE Engine logo. pic.twitter.com/x5vT4DrwYM

As late June of this year, Capcom has told investors that it won’t launch to the Switch and they didn’t have any plans to do so. Now, of course, that was then and this is now. Maybe they did decide to bring Monster Hunter World to the console. Another possibility is its own entry or a stake in the next game.
Nothing is set-in-stone at this point, no date was disclosed by Dusk Golem to when they may reveal something to the public, only that’ll be “soon.” The closest we have as a potential lead is some supposed Shenmue content that may be unveiled within this week or next week. But, at the same time, he never inferred that it’d be then. Frankly, it’d probably be closer to when the game finishes its patch.
